We all know a little bit about the Ancient Greek mythology and the variety of gods, deities and demi-gods and their life stories. This is why you know that there is no Greek god that comes close to the mighty Zeus. He is known as the god of thunder and the sky and he is also the King of Mount Olympus. He keeps tabs on all the other gods and one thing to be weary of is his mighty bad temper. Playtech’s 5 reel and 25 pay line online slot Age of the Gods: King of Olympus shows these almighty immortals most powerful qualities and also brings with it some mighty winning possibilities.
The Age of the Gods slots all carry similarities in their design so the dark blue reels won’t be much of a surprise but the biggest attraction of this slot is definitely the four progressive jackpots. Just remember that you have to play with a Real Money account to be able to win one of these jackpots.
The game is quite easy to play and you can choose between normal speed or turbo mode for a quicker gameplay. If you are someone who likes to be busy with multiple things at once then the Autoplay mode will definitely carry your favour.
Look & Feel
The game as mentioned earlier is based on the Greek god Zeus who is known as the god of sky, thunder, lightning, law, order and justice. He is the ruler of all gods and the beautiful graphics and animations sure bring out his mighty power.
You’ll find symbols such as Zeus himself, the flying stallion Pegasus, the Eagle of Zeus and other symbols such as a ship, harp and a vase on your reels. Zeus is of course the highest value symbol and he can get you up to 120x times your bet. Another high value symbol is the Temple of Zeus scatter symbol.
The most beautiful symbols in all honesty are the Eagle – used as the symbol of Zeus – and the flying stallion Pegasus who used to serve Zeus by delivering thunder and lightning from Olympus – this was obviously before Zeus gave Pegasus to his son Hercules.
The graphics of this slot is gorgeous and easily places the slot amongst the best. You’ll find shades of blue and orange and lightning yellow on your reels that create the feeling of the power this mighty god has.
Sound & Score
The sounds of this slot are spot on, each time the reels spin and the symbols come to a stop it sounds like horse hooves meeting the ground – giving the feeling that Pegasus is running an errand for the mighty Zeus. The soundtrack is dramatic and tense but also quite simplistic which is what makes it fit in so well. Sometimes the best way to display power is by doing so quietly and the sounds of this slot definitely assert the power of Zeus.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The wild symbol of this slot is Zeus himself and he substitutes all symbols except for the scatter symbol.
The Scatter symbol is the Temple of Zeus and triggering three or more will score you 10 free spins that start off with a 2x multiplier.
During the free spins you will have a wild in the middle of reel three and your multiplier will be increased with +1 on every second spin.
On your last four spins you will be spoiled with a x5 and x6 multiplier that will leave you smiling all the way to the bank.
Age of the Gods Jackpot:
As with the Marvel slots from Playtech the Age of the Gods series are linked with four progressive jackpots that keep growing as players spin.
The four jackpots obviously differ in size where the power jackpot is the lowest and the Ultimate power jackpot is the highest. The jackpot game can be triggered by any random spin and will open a small 4×5 block of symbols.
You’ll have to try and uncover three of the same symbols which could score you one of the four different jackpots. This is all at random and anybody can win, of course the higher your bet is, the higher your chances become.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! We would suggest checking out the entire series but Zeus himself is the King of Olympus and will always be a favourite as he is a character of power and authority. Not to mention the fact that he can be quite generous with his bonus wins at time. Are you ready to head up Mount Olympus to meet the father of the gods…
